Access to Information

One consequence of the age of transparency, openness, and access to information is the need to protect personal information.

The Langlois lawyers team has extensive experience dealing with issues connected to access to information and the protection of personal information and privacy as they relate to federal and provincial legislation for both private organizations and public sector entities.

We conduct business process and environmental assessments for our clients in order to improve and develop their practices in these areas, to ensure compliance with their many legislative and regulatory obligations. We also assist them with disputes and litigation.

We have developed advanced expertise supporting our clients’ ongoing needs, including evaluating and processing requests for access to records, preparing and revising privacy protection policies, and representing clients in court on issues relating to personal information and privacy protection.
